Dear Mistic
Drinking lemon and salt water will provide you with some vit C, but it does not promote weightloss or detoxification. Just make sure that you rinse your mouth or brush your teeth after drinking lemon water as the acid in the lemon juice can erode your tooth enamel. Rather avoid drinking salt water as the salt content can raise blood pressure in susceptible individuals and may damage the kidneys. It is not necessary to detox, but if you suffer from constipation click on 'Diet' at the top of this page and then on 'DietDoc's articles' and read Articles 123 and 124 about healthy colon practices and what to eat to keep your colon healthy.
